Always have a Plan b . Ipoh

I'm back with more food post! We checked out the Lost World Hotel earlier before the time reach noon as we were thinking not to reach Penang too late, to avoid traffic jam I guess or any other reasons. Before we left the town, we decided to have lunch at Plan b, which I waited for so long after my last visit to Ipoh, glad that we can make it this time. It was a total disaster to locate a parking lot nearby the restaurant as everyone were out to hunt for their lunch as well.
I like their menu, especially the wooden plank as the base for the menu, next would be the typewriter font printed on the menu.  
The restaurant is rather empty when we were there, it seems like we were the first customer of the day. So we just pick the seat we like (always go for sofa seats) and enjoy the moment. The restaurant is quite spacious and divided into few sections, indoor where you can enjoy the air-cond during broiling weather, outdoor where you can dine with trees and breeze around you. If not mistaken, their kitchen is 'hiding' somewhere else where you can't really find it, I saw waiter/waitress served food from outside. 
Free lemonade water will be served once you are seated. You can don't need to order other beverages if you feel that this is enough for you; btw I just like their brown bottles, or I should say I just like everything there!
Butterscotch Milkshake | RM12 . Carrot Juice | RM12
Still, we ordered drinks to share. They do not have much selection for their milkshake, only chocolate, vanilla and butterscotch. The waitress recommended us to have butterscotch milkshake, which is one of the most popular drink in the restaurant. We were thinking: okay, no harm trying new stuff. The drink is really 'mind-blowing', my first time to have butterscotch kind of drinks and I'm madly in love with that, too bad not all restaurants are serving this. It is so rich and creamy, me likey! The normal carrot juice seems to be lost the battle against butterscotch milkshake lol, still it is quite fresh!
 Spicy Aglio Olio Spaghettini | RM16
The simplest dish among the pasta, yet the most challenging dish for a chef to prepare it as delicious as other pastas since the only ingredient for this is only olive oil and chilies, my thought. The portion is quite huge, and looks plain. We shouldn't judge the food by looking at it, even though it looks plain, but it is quite tasty to omnomnom together with some roasted garlic. Yet, if you finish it alone, you might feel that it is becoming quite greasy at the end.
Wild Mushroom Linguine | RM24
BenDan wanted Carbonara so badly but it was not available during the day we visit, I don't know why; so he ordered this at the end. The dish comes with different types of wild mushroom (at least 3 types I think), he is a mushroom lover so this dish a little bit compensate him for not able to get Carbonara. I like the lemon slices they put in the dish, making the pasta taste so refreshing with a bit of tartness after squeezing it. Overall, it is quite good!
Smoked Salmon & Salsa | RM23
Don't want to have the same categories with them, I ordered this instead. When it first served to me, I don't really like the salsa topped on the ciabatta (a type of Italian white bread) and lovely smoked salmon; too much corn and cucumber cubes. I was expecting something more to tomato cubes and lots of sliced onion, that's why I finished them first lol. Oh yeah, the poached egg is awesome, you can see the running yolks after I poked it. The smoked salmon is very fresh, a smart choice to put it on ciabatta as the white bread is not too hard to munch. 
Chargrilled Kimchi Chicken Burger | RM28
Everyone were so excited when this dish was served, I was aiming on the sweet potato fries, too good to have this! I didn't have a chance to try the kimchi chicken tho, my dad kind of finished it quite fast and claiming that it tasted heavenly good. Papa, you should give us try some mah. While he is munching his kimchi chicken burger, he shared the side salad and sweet potato fries with us. Not really like the side salad as it served without any dressing. 
Plan b is under BIG group, one of my favorite group as they have the nice logo. There is a good news to share with Penangites, next time we don't need to drive so far for Plan b, as they are coming soon in Queensbay Mall! Definite a yay from me.
